I've heard good reports about green iguana and the drive from our hotel was worth it. It was a little confusing because uts located across the street from their old location. Food and presentation was good and hearty and the margaritas were just right. Prices were average and decor was inviting. In other words i will visit again.

My family and I have visited Green Iguana a few times since moving to South Tampa late last year. At first we enjoyed it but the food and service since our first visit has declined. At the last visit the table was sticky and the outside area smelled like stale beer. Food lately has been hit or miss. We will... More

Had a good fish sandwich with wedge salad. It was very good and decent portion. My husband had the Cuban sandwich with fries and it was really good. We had good service and would definitely eat there again.

Visited this restaurant/bar before a concert for a quick bite. The service was slow, the drinks were weak, and the food was reminiscent of any other overpriced terrible pub food. Took forever to get my check as I was trying to escape this place as fast as I could. No, thanks...I'll pass next time. You should too.

I've been frequenting the Iguana for over 20 years first as a college student in Tampa and now as a business traveler. Always a friendly place to catch live music and a beer. Solid pub fare.

We went in for the Tequila Shrimp which was sushi style and awesome but they took it off the menu, so we tried the beef rice bowl it was great as well as the southwest egg rolls. Also we got there for happy hour which made my day!

Stopped by for drinks on May 14th, 2015 at 5 PM. Our barkeep, Karen was a treat. Great lady who kept us entertained. Very clean restaurant on the main Ybor strip. Total whack for 1 beer and 2 cocktails was $16.

We went to Ybor City looking for some sightseeing as recommended in a brochure that we picked up. We didn't find anything to see. I do not recommend, unless you know something that we did not. We were looking for someplace to eat lunch, and just decided on this place. We started with a Redd's apple ale ($4) and green... More

Most people say "what a great hamburger" they have had but I can say this burger was one of the best. I had a triple cheese burger with all the fixings and it was heaven. The waitress was exceptionally friendly and attentive and this lunch time break before flying out of Tampa to Washington, DC was perfect.
